Day 30 - Engage lightswitch

I miss ST:TNG.  So today we made a little Picard bling for our downstairs bathroom lightswitch based on zthralls' Rounded Lightswitch Cover on Thingiverse:

Tinkercad link: https://tinkercad.com/things/lucqw93XA5v-day-30-lights-engage
Thingiverse link: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:156486

Settings: Afinia with .2mm on "normal", 1 hour and 35 minutes, with a filament switch after the first outline of the letters (which is about 55 minutes into the print).

Technical notes: I got the Roddenberry font from Fontspace and used the Inkscape technique described in Day 27 of this blog to import the word into Tinkercad.  To put the font where Inkscape can find it on a Mac, put the .ttf font files into YourComputerName/Library/Fonts (*not* YourUserName/Library/Fonts).
